Notes/Commercial Description:
Hopbursting is a relatively new brewing technique in which the vast majority of hops are added to the kettle late in the boil in order to achieve enhanced extraction of hop components (i.e. Hopbursting gives you tons of hop flavor and aroma!) Our Hopburst IPA has a substantial malt base, balanced with huge additions of our unique hop blend. This creates an incredibly flavorful beer, with smooth bitterness and hoppy goodness.

A: Poured into a pint glass. Cloudy and deep amber color with a magnificent head that never seems to go away but leaves lacing behind all the way down.

S: Stong notes of hops and tropical fruits. I could actually smell it from the release while opening the bottle.

T: Extremely strong hops taste with a side of pineapple, grapefruit and orange peels.

M: Still impressed by the stamina of the thick foamy head. Medium-light body with a slightly dry but smooth finish.

O: This is probably the best American IPA I've had or maybe a close second. I wish I had bought two. Highly recommended!

Pours a deep amber color. One finger of head with good lacing. Has more of a citrus smell with a slight whiff of hops. Tastes more hoppy. Not as much citrus in the taste that I smelled but I think the citrus taste is good.

Overall it is a very good beer and I would have it again.

A-Pours a deep copper color with a nice white head..

S-Citrus and tropical fruits on the nose along with a caramel like maltiness...some floral notes as well....

T-Some nice citrus hop juiciness evident right off the bat....oranges, tangerines....then a bit of tropical fruitiness as well (mangoes, papaya)...good malt balance with more of a toffee impression on the taste...

M-it all comes together nicely and surprisingly the lasting impression is a spicy hop hit....body is medium full....carbonation is good

O-Glad I bought this....never heard of this brewery before but this is a above average fruit forward IPA...not a lot of sharp bitterness which is fine by me...
